The focus of the course was to grasp the core concepts of calculus using concrete analogies, without getting lost in the basic definitions and unending algebraic calculations. Most of the burden of algebra was taken up by GeoGebra App and other free online tools, so one could discover and admire the beauty of calculus itself without any distraction, and explore the subject from the core.
This was a series of five sessions, each being 1 hour and 30 minutes long, conducted online through the Zoom platform.
No formal background knowledge in Calculus was required; however, background knowledge of Algebra, Trigonometry, and Functions was expected. The course was specifically curated for high school students who find calculus “clue-less” but have a motivated and curious mind.

The Khwarizmi Science Society will indulge in some math fun with the little ones at Al Huda, Defence Branch on 27th July. The Misbah al Quran Summer Camp organized with the help of life member Momin Uppal will be our second camp this summer and we are so very glad to see the children make the most of their vacations.
The Khwarizmi Science Society will be a part of upcoming Faisalabad Science Festival as an exhibitor. Given the need for the popularization of activity-based education, Faisalabad has taken up the responsibility to bring fun into maths and science.
